Bling Ring

set 3_3 Set 2_23 Set 2_28

Who doesn’t like a little bling? Whether it’s on a dress, on an arm, or a finger, I love anything that sparkles.  The Cynthia Rowley shop in Charleston just has that cool factor.   I recently went to one of their sample sales, and the selection and deals were crazy good.  The ring is from Harleston which is known for their funky shoes, but they also carry some great jewelry as well.

Stripe Tease

I’m all about this Cali surf brand, Seea that makes this striped top.  It can be easily translated to a post surf look at Folly Beach.  The striped earrings that I found at Ensemble Consignment Boutique were an added bonus.  I love it when I find pieces that were meant to be together, sometimes I can’t resist a matchy matchy moment.

All things BEC by Beth Coiner

The local bespoke jewelry line BEC, is designed by Beth E. Coiner.   Her approach to design is totally client focused so that they get a one of a kind piece that’s tailored to them.  She frequently uses re-purposed materials using the lost wax casting process.  You can see this depth and thought that goes into each one of her handcrafted pieces.

Being raised in a small town on the coast of eastern North Carolina, living in New York City for twelve years as a performance artist and designer and now residing in Charleston, Beth’s textural designs conjure both urban and rural tiny vistas. Whether it’s dry wall paper, honeycombs or bits of lace, her signature style has always been about textures, a combination of both delicate and gritty.

BEC is carried at Worthwhile and online at

I’m loving this dress with the peplum detail.  It’s perfect for the office, date night, or cocktails with the ladies.  I’m all about versatility and this dress has it all!

Pleats Please

I love to get in a little adventure when I shoot on location.  My friend Tyler shot me at the very end of Folly Beach where you can see the Morris Island Lighthouse.  It’s what you would picture the beaches would look like a hundred years ago – trees everywhere, beautiful driftwood washed up on the shore, deserted areas.  I thought this pleated caftan by Cavortress from Ensemble was the perfect thing to wear on this breezy summer day.

I love this 2 peice swimsuit by Rhythm at Mckevlin’s Surf Shop.  The high waisted bikini bottoms have really made a come back and I think it’ll be around for a while.  Anna is also wearing all Kate Davis Jewelry, a local designer that finds inspiration from the sea, hence her cool shark’s tooth necklaces that have been an all time favorite.

The cobalt blue color of this Cynthia Rowley dress is the perfect jolt of color every woman needs in their closet.  Cynthia Rowley has a great mix of clothes made out of this neoprene fabric –  from tops, leggings, skirts, to dresses.  I said before and I’ll say it again, this fabric is super flattering, it’s like wearing spanx!
